I hate how Google Hangouts mutes your mic when you're typing. It makes collaborating with people difficult. (We're talking/typing notes/looking stuff up.)

That's why I'm complaining about it publicly on Google's social service.

The recent release of StrikeTracker 2.5 is an important moment for the StrikeTracker team here at Highwinds.

Google, you really have to stop re-styling the scroll bar in all of your applications.

It's terrible, isn't it?

Employment, the income gap that exists today, and an over-worked workforce are the media stories that catch my eye these days. My current theory is that the solution to these problems is the increasing number of people who freelance or consult. They make a premium for their services and they have more control over their lives (take 6 weeks off? no PTO plan standing in their way). I think the only real impediment to this model increasing is health insurance.

I can't believe Google is going through a Goth phase. Everything looks so terrible over here now - black and red with ridiculous amounts of white space.

Homepage, Google Plus, Reader... I bet they're ruining Gmail next.

Yep, there it is. Just saw the 'try new look' button in Gmail.

This stuff is terrible. I used to addictively go to Reader, now my eyes hurt and I don't want to go back. I think I'm going to start using the mobile view on the desktop for Reader.

Just because there is a name for a bad process, doesn't mean you should list it on your resume. #waterfall #agile

Agile is not a process - it's an ordeal.

If Google Docs had a more wiki-like navigation, it would be the greatest wiki ever.

My work uses Google Apps, but we also have Confluence. Love the Google apps text editor, love the confluence organization.

Hard going from super concise, to-the-point books like what "A Book Apart" publishes, back to the long-winded stuff everyone else writes. :(

I read their HTML5 and CSS3 books, and I'm wishing they had a JQuery book.

In the war of practical vs theoretical, practical usually wins. No different here. Good stuff.
